I found procedure of changing tranny oil.

Disconnect cooler line (from tranny of course) and start the car (selector in N). Wait for all oil to drain, but not longer than one minute. If oil is drained, stop engine and remove the oil drain plug.
Clean, put it back.

Refill oil and repeat procedure. After second time refill and you are all done.


EDIT:

C - Driving on rough, dusty, muddy, unpaved, graveled or salt-spread roads. page 7/12 of manual

Maybe I am retarded... but what salt, mud, sand has to do with transmission fluid? There is no way for sand to get into the system, is it?
I do understand all other points (A, E, F, G, H, I), but not C.
Can someone explain me that?
